CORNING

not the tableware
Being this is the Cornhusker state, it is heard periodically.

CONDIGN
(only ever seen it used in the context of "condign punishment" or "penalty" - and that, not often.)

NOCTIS

RE CONDIGN...a word I didnt know but have since looked up. (glad you got to post it Wofa). I also enjoyed reading the Prompt Book for the Mikado and the side notes and stage drawing...what a great thing to find.....but then, I guess you know the word by heart!

NOCTIS

S-->A

ACTION !



"And so
Although
I wish to go
And greatly pine
Tp brghty shine
And take the line
Of a hero fine
With grief condign
I must decline!"

Having been in a couple of Mikado productions, and experienced first-hand the complexities of staging, this was eye-opening.
